Volunteer Sign Ups

Our school and classroom wouldn't be the same without the help of parents like you.  There will be opportunities to help out throughout the year.  


Thank you to all of you that reached out to help with driving and attending the Moraga History Trip!  It looks like I will need all of you that volunteered!  Let me know if you are interested in coming.  Our room parent is looking for help with the Spring Luau (April 27th) and will be looking for help in June for our end of year party.   Parents helping on trips or in class projects need to be cleared by the district.  


Volunteers are required to fill out paperwork, take a quiz, and bring a copy of your driver's license to the office or district office.  Click here to access the requirements.  Many people are already "cleared" with the district.  Please contact the office or myself if you are unsure of your status.  Driver form is located in my "locker".  Please fill this out if you can be a driver.


Thank you for all the support you provide in and out of the classroom.
